Non-Beauty Things I'm Loving This Week

The last few weeks I've taken my foot off the gas a little with my blog as I've been busy getting out and about, going to fun events and discovering more of London. It's always refreshing to take some time away and explore something new so I feel like I've learnt of new things and discovered some exciting brands and activities along the way! While my obsession with beauty products still remains strong, here are a few things I've been loving outside of the beauty world recently...

Holy Moly Dips



A while ago I went to Taste of London food festival and while I was there I discovered quite possibly the most delicious guacamole ever. It was by the brand new Holy Moly Dips, who create 100% natural avocado dips. As well as creating delicious guacamole, in both original and spicy, they are the first brand to create a pot of pure, ready-made smashed avocado - making a brunches a breeze and eliminating the dreaded 'Avocado Hand' injury!

I am fully obsessed with these dips and am stocked up. If you want to get some for yourself you can buy them from Waitrose, Whole Foods, or online at Ocado. 

Pukka Tea



I'm guilty of drinking around five cups of tea filled to the brim with sugar each day, so I'm trying to swap my regular tea for herbal teas. I recently went along to an event with Pukka at Whole Foods to discover their range of teas and was surprised by just how many different varieties of tea they have! My new daily favourites are Clean Greens, a refreshing, lemony green tea, Cleanse, a fennel tea for unhappy teas, and even Turmeric tea - which I've been told is bursting with antioxidants and is great for skin. Pukka also do an adorable travel tin to keep individual tea bags in when you're out and about.

Love Bug Probiotics



I've never really used probiotics in the past but recently a lot of people have been telling me about the benefits of them. Things like stress, tiredness and hormones and cause havoc with my digestion and I'm often left feeling bloated and sluggish. LoveBug's 'Here's the Skinny' probiotic is great for digestive health by restoring the balance between good and bad bacteria in the gut. 

Calligraphy



This one is a bit of a random one but I recently decided I wanted to learn calligraphy! I'm very much a 'do-er' and like to keep myself busy so I booked on to a calligraphy workshop through Obby. The workshop took place in a beautiful coffee shop in Notting Hill called Pearl and Groove and was led by the lovely Alice Gabb. We learnt the basics of modern calligraphy and took home a pen and paper as well as all the essentials we need so we can keep practicing at home. While I've been pretty busy recently so haven't managed to keep it up as much as I like, it's always nice to set aside some time in the evenings to sit at the table and have a quiet hour or two to myself practicing!

Exploring London




I've lived in London around a year-and-a-half now but there is still so much of the city I need to see and every day there is something new to discover! I recently got the book Insider London which is full of shop, pub and bar recommendations as well as the classic tourist spots so this is helping me to compile my 'London bucket list'. Summer is by far my favourite time in London as there are popup and rooftop bars galore! Last week I went to the Pimms rooftop bar on top of Selfridges with some friends from work to sip on our favourite summer drink and chill out while watching Wimbledon!
